The ChargeCard is a really neat idea. It is always a pain when you toss a USB connector cord into your briefcase, only to have it unravel and get tangled on everything. It’s a USB-charging cable for iOS devices that’s in the shape of a business card. ChargeCard is better because it is 1/10th an inch thick. This one in the link is likely 4-5/10ths of an inch thick making it much more difficult than to stow in your wallet. It is vital when you’re deciding what’s worthy of your scarce wallet storage space. We agree the battery pack is useful, but it doesn’t satisfy the core need: always having it on you when you really need it.
One nice feature is that it’s designed to work with thicker, “tough” cases. As for what happens if Apple releases an iPhone 5 with a smaller connector port (there are strong rumors that it will),firm looked forward to developing any future connectors once Apple released the specifications.
If you make a pledge to buy the product (preorder it), you get a discount (the ChargeCard’s retail price is set at $25 but you can get it for $18). If you increase your pledge, you can also choose from different color options and even get one with a customized inscription. The project will be funded if it raises $50,000.
The ChargeCard’s small size means that it is not as versatile as a USB cord, but on the other hand, it could not be any easier to carry, whether it be in your wallet or a small pocket in your briefcase. This 30-pin version works well, and when the Lightning model comes out hopefully.
